The BlackBerry Z3 is available in India and Indonesia with strong sales and considerable attention from customers. BlackBerry's CEO John Chen confirmed this in an interview with India's Economic Times, but didn't mention specific numbers.

He noted that the Z3 was "extremely well received" over its opening weekdiscontinue in the two countries and that demand is continuing to be strong. In his opinion, users like the phone's classy screen size, battery life and its aggressive pricing. The Z3 sales for under $200 and packs a 5" qHD display with a Snapdragon 400 chipset featuring a 1.2Giga Hertz (GHz) dual-core Krait 200 CPU.

In addition, Mr. Chen assumed that the BlackBerry Passport and BlackBerry Classic will be released later this year but wasn't any more specific than that. The company's partnership with Foxconn, which is making the Z3, isn't exclusive, he shares in the interview. If BlackBerry deems other outsourcing solution more financially viable, it's going to consider moving production of future devices to them.

However, the company's CEO didn't specify if we should expect more affordable devices with the BlackBerry logo. Both the Passport and Classic are expected to be priced higher than the Z3. Still, this is remarkable news for the otherwise struggling Canadian phonemaker.
